Burnham said Friday that he’s been in touch with the directors of the three meets — Class A at Cony High in Augusta, Class B at Windham and Class C at Foxcroft Academy in Dover-Foxcroft — and the tracks are in shape and maintenance crews are in place in the event of rain.

There were no plans to postpone the meets.

“We’re going to make every effort to get the meets in,” Burnham said.
